NOAA/NSIDC Climate Data Record of Passive Microwave Sea Ice Concentration, Version 3
Entry ID: G02202_3


Summary
Abstract: This data set provides a Climate Data Record (CDR) of sea ice concentration from passive microwave data. The CDR algorithm output is a rule-based combination of ice concentration estimates from two well-established algorithms: the NASA Team (NT) algorithm (Cavalieri et al. 1984) and NASA Bootstrap (BT) algorithm (Comiso 1986). The CDR is a consistent, daily and monthly time series of sea ice ... View entire text
